The Vivo NEX is powered by a 2.2 GHz Octa-Core processor placed upon Snapdragon 710 chipset and a 6GB of RAM. A Adreno 616 is added with those to output a superb graphics display. The handset runs on FuntouchOS 4.0 OS based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

The Vivo NEX sports a 6.59 inches Super AMOLED display with a 1080 x 2316 resolution. The Vivo NEX comes with a metal body and is available in Black, White and Gold colored body.

A reset is suggested before gifting or selling a device, and in some cases for troubleshooting. You can do a factory reset or a hard reset.
